“Beautiful Surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We had a standard king size room overlooking the marina - yes you do have to overlook the carpark in the foreground but its really not that bad!
It was a great room with all the amenities of a good, clean standard hotel room that is tastefully decorated - no flamboyant tropical print here!
beautiful breakfast room and perfect position near the amentities of Hotel del Corondado, the marina and Orange Ave.

Stayed 2 nights for pleasure. Upon arrival, the staff was kind enough to change our room so it would be better for 2 adults, one who had trouble navigating stairs. Rooms were well kept, comfortable, and clean, the grounds are nice, the afternoon punch and cookies a treat. It was nice to have coffee and tea round the clock. The morning breakfast had a good variety and was long enough to enjoy it leisurely. I enjoyed eating out on the patio. Free newspapers in the morning. The location was handy to everything we wanted to do. Can't recommend it high enough and will stay here again. Delightful.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the bay may be a bit louder since they have a road so request an inner courtyard r...

We stayed in an upper floor suite with a bedroom and sofa sleeper. It was spacious--had two bathrooms, a balcony and some kitchen accommodations. No view of the bay, but we still enjoyed it. The location is close to the beach at the Del Coronado and many restaurants along Orange Avenue. Except when going into San Diego, we walked everywhere. The picturesque marina was a stroll away and we ambled through the surrounding quiet neighborhoods admiring the historic homes. We were in the area to visit San Diego State University which was about 20 minutes away when we drove there in mid-morning. The wifi was free and dependable. We've had better complimentary breakfasts but this one was fine.

We just got back from a 3 night vacation on Coronadoa and have only the best things to say about the hotel and staff. We arrived early in the morning (9:30) and our bay view room was not ready yet so they gave us a temporary room to use at no charge until it was ready. The staff is incredibly friendly, and they went out of their way to make us feel at home. Our room had a great veiw of the Glorietta Bay, and was just a short walk to the beach. We also had a late night flight when we left so they gave us an extended checkout as well. I would defintely stay here again. Only draw back was the nearby Naval Air Base. Sunday and Monday were quiet, but Tuesday they flew helicpopters over the beach all day long and well into the night on training missions (every 5 minutes another one buzzed overhead), so eventually it got pretty annoying. Wednesday was also pretty noisy on the beach as well from the helicopters, but not as bad as Tuesday.

Room Tip: Pay the few extra dollars for a bay view room, it is well worth it. The morning sunshine comes in o...

Glorietta Bay Inn is warm, inviting, serene, quiet, charming, and clean. The staff and management team exceeded my expectations for our 4 day get away. The morning breakfast was great and the presentation was wonderful. I intend to book another get a way there very soon. We walked to several shops and nearby restaurants which were locally owned and operated. We did not need a car to get around and had easy access to the Trolley and bus line to go to San Diego. The beach is across the road and it has easy access from the hotel. Highly recommend for family or couples or girlfriend get a ways!!

Room Tip: Bay View recommended
